Box Pleat Heading
Box pleat curtains create a professional and tailored look, the fixed structured pleats create vertical folds from the very top to the bottom of the curtain. This finished look works perfectly if you require a flat panel at your window.

How to measure for box pleat voile curtains:
When taking measurements we will always recommend you install your track or pole first and use a metal tape measure. This will ensure the measurements you provide us for a quotation will be as accurate as possible.
Due to the sewn in flat pleats there is not a lot of space for stack back. If using a pair at one window these are better draped back with tie backs or hold backs, to maximise light.
Once your track or pole has been successfully installed, measure from the centre of the glider to where you want the curtain to finish. Giving us the exact curtain drop will mean less room for error at the production stage. If you want your curtains to sit on the floor measure to the floor, if you want them to hover deduct 1 cm to ensure you can smoothly run your hand underneath them. If you would like your curtain pooling or puddling on the floor you will need to add approximately 30cm, this is however a personal preference and we would therefore recommend experimenting with draping fabric on the floor to ensure you get the exact look you have envisioned.
If you are unable to install your track or pole first, we will need to know the depth of your track or pole position so we can calculate your drop for you. Most of our tracks and poles are ready for immediate despatch unless they are made to order, but these only take up to 7 days to be made to your exact sizes. From experience it is worth waiting a little longer to ensure your measurements are exact, this is crucial to adding the final touches to your interior project.
